The Service Record of the 18th Battery Australian Field Artillery. Egypt, France, Flanders, Belgium, 1915-1919 [cover title]

London, 'Published for the 18th Battery AIF by Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd', [1919].

366 × 268 mm, [4] leaves (printed rectos only), each with a reproduction of ornate Honor Rolls drawn and designed by (Gunner, Sergeant, then Staff-Sergeant) P.R. Wightman between 1916 and 1919, with the battalion colours printed in red and blue. The basic units of design are large-calibre shells, and the end results are stunning (no pun intended!).

Pictorial card covers bound with red and blue cord (the battalion colours); covers scuffed, unevenly tanned and a little worn at the extremities, with the head of the spine split; cord faded; a decent copy (internally in excellent condition).

The front cover artwork is by the British artist Harry Payne (1858-1927).
